With Ferrari having recently extended their deal with Marlboro, here’s a flashback to the days when McLaren were sponsored by the same company, and pit stops weren’t quite as quick as they are today:25th September 2017, 17:08 at 5:08 pm #350786
There’s something fishy about this one. Apparently this is a genuine TV ad for an insurance company featuring David Coulthard which, according to this report, was recently banned for encouraging reckless driving.
That alone is enough to make you wonder if the whole thing was intentional (there’s nothing like a bit of free national newspaper coverage for your ad being banned). But then the ad itself tries to make out the the couple in the back of the car didn’t know they were being filmed, which is obviously not the case.
For all that, there’s some skilful driving on display here – it’d be nice to know who was doing the stunts. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was created so it would inevitably be banned and then spread around the internet by people like me…15th November 2017, 19:50 at 7:50 pm #356105
